The Mayor submitted the following communication

■J0URN.\L— CITY COUNCIL. 



May 3, 1920. 



and ordinance, which were ordered publis'bed and re- 
ferred to the Committee on Local Transportation: 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, April 28, 1920.J 

To the Honorable, the City Coimcil of the City of Chicago-. 
Gentlemen— On the IQth day of April, 1920, the Chicago 
City Railway Company, acting for itself and the Calumet 
and South Chicago Railway Company and the Southern 
Street Railway Company, tendered to the City of Chicago 
■ its check for the sum of four hundred forty-two thousand 
nine hundred ninety dollars and seventy-one cents 
($442,990.71); and the Chicago Railways Company tendered 
to the City of Chicago its check for the sum of one million 
four thousand three hundred seventy-two dollars and 
twenty-two cents ($1,004,37'2.22). These checks, were so 
tendered as and for the 55 per cent, of the net divisible 
receipts for the year ended January 31, 1920, which the 
companies claimed to be due the city under their respective 
contracts with the city. 

The Comptroller, acting on the advice of the Corporation 
Counsel, refused to accept such tender unless the com- 
]janies would stipulate that the acceptance thereof should be 
without prejudice, to any of the rights of the City in the 
])-siiding controversy with the companies as to the increase 
in their rates of fare above the five-cent rate for adults and 
the three-oent rate for children stipulated in their contracts. 
"The companies have refused to enter into such stipulation. 

The Corporation Counsel so advised the Comptroller be- 
cause the companies have repudiated their contracts in the 
essential matters of rates of fare to be charged the people 
and the service to be given by them to the people; and the 
acceptance by the City of such tender, under the contracts, 
niiglit be held to amount to an acquiescence by it in the 
position taken by the companies that they can procure, 
tluough the Public Utilities Commission, a modification of 
their contracts with respect to rates of fare and service and 
still hold the City to those parts of the contracts which are 
to the advantage of the companies. 

While these companies continue to break faith with the 
people and refuse to furnish first-class service for five-cent 
fares as they agreed to, do, in and by their contracts which 
were not only passed by the City Council, but were also 
submitted to and approved hy the people before they were 
accepted by the companies, I am determined, so far as I 
have the power, that they shall not keep the exclusive right 
to use the streets of the City and their other vast advan- 
tages under the contracts. 

I think that the position of the City should be that the 
companies have broken their contracts in the essential mat- 
ters of rates of fare and service and consequenty that the 
contracts are broken in their entirety and that the City can 
have no further dealings with them under the contracts. 
To say, as the Supreme Court of the State has said, that 
these contracts are binding on the City and the companies 
l)ut that tlie Public Utilities Commission on the application 
of the companies, can modify them by increasing the rates of 
fare therein stipulated seems to me to involve an incon- 
sistency which the City should contest to the bitter end and 
in which the City should not in any way acquiesce. 

.\side from its general importance, this matter has a 
special importance with respect to the plan proposed by mo 
and now under consideration by the Commission on Local 
Transportation recently appointed under authority of an 
ordinance passed by the City Council for the formation of 



a Local Transportation District, to be governed by trustees 
to be elected by the people and which will acquire a system 
of street railways to be owned and operated by the people 
in the interest of the people. I do not think that such 
Transportation District will be bound, by the contracts 
above referred to, to purchase from these companies their 
properties and pay them therefor the purchase price speci- 
fied in the contracts, now aggregating, on their face, al- 
most $160,000,000, but over $75,000,000 of which the rep- 
resentatives of the companies testified before the Board of 
Review "was represented by no property at all." However, 
if such Transportation District should deem it to be for the 
best interest of the people to acquire, by condemnation or 
otherwise, any portion of these properties, the companies 
ought not to be put in a position so that they can claim any 
added value thereto on account of any rights they may 
have, or claim to have, under the contracts. 

In passing let me suggest that, under the decision of the 
Supreme Court above referred 'to, it is not a question 
whether or not the Thompson plan is desirable ; such plan 
is ' an absolute necessity ; because, if the law is as laid 
down by the Supreme Court, these companies are utterly 
disabled to make any valid and binding contract as to rates 
of fare or service; and, of course, the City and its officials 
would be false to the people if they made contracts with 
these companies which would riot be binding on the com- 
panies, in the respects mentioned, which are the respects in 
which they would be/ valuable to the people, but would be 
binding in those respects in which they would toe valuaJble 
to the companies. 

Therefore I approve the action of the Comptroller in re- 
fusing the tender made by these comipanies; and to the 
end that the rights of the City and of the people, repre- 
sented by the City, may not be impaired by reason of any 
lack of authority in me in the premises I respectfully ask 
the City Council likewise to approve such action. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Whekeas, The Mayor has 'this day transmitted to the 
City Council a message in and by which he states among 
other things that on the 10th day of April, 1920, the 
Chicago City Railway Company, acting for itself, and the 
Calumet and South Chicago Railway Company and the 
Southern Street Railway Company tendered to the City of 
Chicago its check for the sum of four hundred forty-two 
thousand nine hundred ninety dollars and seventy-one 
cents ($442,990.71) and the Chicago Railways Company 
tendered to the City of Chicago its check for the sum of 
one million four thousand three hundred seventy-two dol- 
lars and twenty-two cents ($1,004,372.22), as and for the 
55% of the net divisible receipts for the year ended Jan- 
uary 31, 1920, which said companies claim to be due the 
City under tlieir respective contracts with the City; and 
that the Comptroller, acting oji the advice of the Corpora- 
tion Coun.sel, refused to accept such tender 'unless the 
companies would stipulate that the acceptance thereof 
should be without prejudice to any of the rights of the 
City in the pending controversy with the companies as to 
the increase in their rates of fare above the five cent rate 
for adults and the three cent rate for children, stipulated 
in their contracts, ana that the companies refused to enter 
into such stipulation; and

further stat<'d among other things that he thought the po-

sition of the City should be that the companies have broken 
their contracts in the essential matters of rates of fare and 
service, and consequently that the contracts are broken in 
their entirety and that the City can have no further dealings 
with them under the contracts, and that for the reasons 
stated in his communication he approved the action of the 
Comptroller in refusing said tender made by the companies; 
and 

Whereas. Tlie Mayor in and by his said communication 
asked that to the end, the rights of the City and of the peo- 
ple represented by the City might not be impaired by reason 
of any lack of authority in him as Mayor in the premises, 
the Crty Council likewise approve such action of the Comp- 
troller: therefore 

Be it ordained by the City Oouticil of the City of Chicago: 

Section 1. That the action of the said Comptroller in re- 
fusing to accept the tender so made by said companies as 
hereinbefore set forth be and the same is hereby approved. 

Section 2. Ihis ordinance shall be in full force and 
efl'ect from- and after its passage and approval.

Coimpensation Fixed for Special Counsel in Litigation 
Concerning Rates of Fare. 

The Clerk presented the following communication, 
submitted by the Corporation Counsel: 

Departaient of Law,^ 
Chicago, May 3, 1920. j 

To the Hotwiable, the City Council of the City of CMcago : 

Gentlemen — The annual appropriation ordinance makes 
provision for carrying on the litigation concerning the rates 
of fare to be charged by the surface and elevated traction 
lines of the city, and also for the litigation concerning the 
rates and charges of the telephone company. 

The said ordinance requires that all person employed in 
connection with auch litigation should be paid such com- 
pensation as may be fixed by the City Council. 

Inasmuch as this provision relates to accountants and 
engineers as well, I have found it necessary to prepare for 
the purpose of making the money appropriated available, 
three separate ordinances. 

One of these provides for compensation to be fixed for spe- 
cial counsel, engineer and stenographers in connection with 
the telephone litigation. Another provides for the fixing of 
compensation for special counsel and real estate experts in 
connection with the traction litigation, and the third pro- 
vides for the making of contracts with a corporation in the 
business of making appraisals, and an accounting firm, in 
lieu of employing engineers and accountants directly for this 
purpose. 

The emploj'ment of engineers and accountants without 
employing a competent head for same, who is equipped with 
the necessary office help and requirements to do the work, 
was found inexpedient. I, therefore, ask that the City Coun- 
cil may confirm arrangements- that I have made by, which 
this work will be taken care of at a stipulated per diem 
for engineers and accountants with the fixed overhead 
charge added thereto. 

You will observe in the two ordinances providing for com- 
pensation of special counsel that some of the same persons 
are named as special counsel for both traction and telephone 
litigation. You will understand, of course, that this does not

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, The City Council, in its Annual Appropria- 
tion Bill for the Year 1920, appropriated the sum of $95,-

tion regarding rates of fare on surface and elevated lines

ducive to the proper co-operation of the persons employed

tlie business of making appraisals and another contract 
with a firm of accountants, instead of employing such 
engineers and accountants directly; therefore,

hereby authorized to enter into a contract with Adams- 
B^attj'-Francois Corporation for the appraisal of the prop-

of the chief engineer employed shall be at the rate of 
$60.00 per day, staff appraisers at the rate of $60.00 per 
day and field appraisers at the rate of $30.00 per day, 
with an additional fifteen per cent for overhead expense:

authorized and directed to pay to said contractors named 
in Section 1 hereof from the moneys appropriated for such 
appraisal and accounting work such sums as are earned in 
accordance with the rates fixed herein upon the approval

Section 1. That an ordinance passed by the City Coun- 
cil December 2, ,1912, and appearing upon pages 2578-79 of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of said date, granting per- 
mission to the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis 
Railway Company, a corporation, its 'successors and as- 
signs, to install and maintain two (2) conduits under and 
across Fifty-first street, along the right of way of the said 
Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railway Com- 
pany be and the same is hereby repealed.

Automatic Vending Maciiincs: Licensing and Regu- 
lation (Amendment). 

The Clerk presented the following communication: 

Department of Public Works,^ 

Bureau of Compensation, l 

Chicago, April 29, 1920.J 

To the Uonorahlc, ihe Mayor and the City Council of the 
City of Chicago : 

Gientlemen— On March 10, 1920, page 2173 C. P., an 
ordinance was passed by the City Council licensing and 
regulating automatic vending machines. Under the terms 
of the ordinance as passed by the enforcement of the same is 
placed upon the Commissioner of Public Works. 

From such investigation as I have been able to make, 
it is estimated that the number of machines subject to this 
ordinance will be in excess of twenty thousand, including 
gum machines, match machines, automatic scales, perfume 
machinery, electricity machines, fortune telling machines and 
automatic restaurants. Of this number, at least ninety 
per cent are operated in stores located on private property. 
The authority to issue licenses and to regulate private prop- 
erty is clearly outside the powers and duties of the Com- 
missioner of Public Works, as defined in Sections 2068-69 
of The Chicago Code of 1911. On the other hand, Section 
12 of the Code provides that the City Clerk shall attest all 
licenses granted under ordinances of. the city and shall keep 
a record of the issuance thereof. 

It would therefore appear that the issuance of these 
licenses should be supervised by the City Clerk and the 
City Collector. After a conference with the City Clerk, I 
have caused to be prepared and transmit herewith for con- 
sideration by your honorable body an amendment making 
this change in the ordinance and leaving the type of tag 
to be attached to the machines to the discretion of the City 
Clerk as it has been found in many instances that a metal 



tag is not practical and is very expensive. Inasmuch as 
notices are now being served by license officers on all par- 
ties operating such machines to secure their license, imme- 
diate consideration of the ordinance is suggested. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Chas. R. Francis, 

Commissioner of Public Woi'lcs.

Su'peiintendent of Compensation.

"Profiteering" by Landlords. 

Alderman Mulcahy presented the following report of 
the Committee on Rent Profiteering (a committee of 
(he City Council during 1919-20): 

Chicago, May 3, 1920. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago, in City- 
Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Rent Profiteering appointed by the 
Mayor, February 5, 1920, in pursuance of a resolution in- 
troduced in the City Council on February 5, 1920, authoriz- 
ing said committee to investigate the increase of rent by 
owners and agents of real estate in the City of Chicago, beg 
leave to report: 

That said committee organized immediately upon its ap- 
pointment on February .5, 1920, and issued a request through 
the newspapers, that all persons complaining of exorbitant 
increases of rents be directed to appear before said commit- 
tee and file complaints against their respective landlords. 

Your committee has held a great number of meetings and 
has heard hundreds of complaints. 



Your committee called upon the Chicago Real Estate 
Board and the Cook County Real Estate Board to send rep- 
resentatives to said hearings and through said representa- 
tives your committee was able to bring about arbitration be- 
tween tenants and a number of landlords and real estate 
men who were willing to arbitrate the individual cases of 
rent increases. The Chicago Real Estate Board appointed 
a committee of experts and after hearing a great many of 
these complaints which were referred to it by your commit- 
tee secured in many cases a reduction in the amount of rent 
charged. 

Your committee, with the assistance of the Corporation 
Counsel's office, has investigated the question of enacting 
legislation which would relieve the situation and give your 
committee or the proper office of the City power to compel 
landlords to make a fair rental and to desist from charging 
exorbitant and unfair rental, but your committee finds that 
the City of Chicago has not the power under the present 
police powers granted to the City under the City and Vil- 
lages Act. 

The State of [Maryland has granted to the City of Balti- 
moi'c the full police power of the State of Maryland within 
the City of Baltimore and under this liberal grant of power 
the Corporation Counsel of the City of Baltimore has held 
that that city has the power of making regulations with ref- 
erence to the- rent of apartments and houses. 

The State of New York has recently enacted specific leg- 
islation whereby the authorities of the City of New York 
are able to interfere and prevent the charging of exorbitant 
rent and to grant relief to tenants from such rent profiteer- 
ing. 

Your conmiittee therefore recommends to the City Coun- 
cil that the Corporation Counsel be directed to prepare for 
presentation to the next session of the legislature suitable 
legislation so that the City Council of the City of Chicago 
may make svutable regulation of the present rent profiteer- 
ing on the part of owners and real estate agents. 

Respectfully submitted.

DEPARTMEJKT OF PUBLIC WORliS. 



Strikes of Teamsters, Street Laborers, Chauffeurs and 
Truck Drivers. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion submitted by the Commissioner of Public Works: 

Department of Public Works,] 

Commissioner's Office,}- 

Chicago, May 25, 1920.J 

The Honorable, the Mayor and City Council: 

Gentlemen — 'It is deemed necessary that your 

honorable body be fully advised in the matter of 
recent strikes of union employes of the department. 
Tlie interests 'of the public, as well as those of the 
City and employes not on strike subject to lay-off 
on account of discontinuance of work, warrant me 
in presenting the subject for your consideration, inas- 
much as the causes are due to unsatisfactory wage 
scales. 

A commumication was addressed to me, under date 
of May 12th, signed by John Sheridan, General Sec- 
retary-Treasurer of the Chicago Teamsters, Chauff- 
eurs and Helpers' Union of Chicago and vicinity, in- 
forming me that if the matter of wage scales was not 
adjusted by May 18th they would refuse to work. A 
letter was also received by me, dated May 13th, 
signed by Tim Murphy, of the Street Laborers' Union, 
informing me that failure to receive wage scale pre- 
sented by May 18th would result in their refusal 
to work. Both of these communications were for- 
warded by me on May 13th to the Chairman of the 
Committee on Finance. 

On May 15, 1920, I addressed a communication to 
the Chairman of the Committee on P'inancc, direct- 
ing attention to the impending strike and its serious 
consequences, and recommending that the committee 
convene to consider the situation in the hope of 
averting a strike. Due to the fact that no hearing 
was held the various emiployes affiliated with the 
Chiicago Teamsters, Chauffeurs and Helpers' Union 
went out on strike on May 18, 1920, which necessi- 
tated the forwarding of a communication by me to 
the Chairman of the 'Committee on Finance, on May 
18lh, directing attentiion to the seriousness of the 
strike in connection with the work of the department. 

On the morning of May 19, 1920, a meeting was 
held in my office, at which representatives of the 
iiiiioTis involved were present, and also tlic Chair- 
man of the Committee on Finance. At this meeting 
personal assurances were given by the Chairman of 
the Committee on Finance that a hearing with re- 
spect to wage scales would be granted by the Com- 
mittee on Finance to the various representatives of 



May 26, 1920.

unions afTeoted. and a definite decision would be 
made by the Committee on Finance on or before 
June 15, 1920. 

On this assurance the representatives of the unions 
agreed to recommend to a meeting of their mem- 
bership a return to work pending the liearings pro- 
posed. On May 20th the Teamsters and Streets La- 
borers voted fo return to work, but the Chauffeurs 
and Truck Drivers voted to remain out on strike. 

On May 21, 1920, the representatives of the Chauf- 
feurs and Truck Drivers' organizations presented 
themselves at my office and officially notjified me that 
their men would not return to work until an adjust- 
ment of their wage scale be first given consideration 
by the Committee on Finance. I then informally 
communicated with the Finance Connmitlee at their 
meeting then in session, with the suggestion that a 
hearing be immediately given, but the committee 
was disinclined to grant same for the reason tiuit 
matters other than wage matters were being con- 
sidered. I then confirmed the matter by addressing 
the Chairman of the Committee on Finance, under 
date of May 21st, again impressing upon the com- 
mittee the sepious consequences resulting to the City 
by reason of the strike. I attach hereto coi)ie3 of all 
correspondence. 

Inasmuch as the matter in controversy involves 
authorization to pay union scale of wages, it becomes 
necessary to present the subject for your consid- 
eration and decisiion. 

Yours very truly, 

('Signed) Chas. R. Francis, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

Alderman Bowler thereupon presented the following 
order : 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public Works 
be and he hereby is authorized and directed to in- 
vestigate the schedule of wages presented by the 
chauffeurs employed by the City of Chicago, and, be 
it further 

Ordered, That if upon investigation the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works shall find that the said sched- 
ule of wages is what is commonly known and ac- 
cepted as the union scale of wages paid by r mployers 
other than the City o'f Chicago for similar work, he 
shall order the men to return to work, and comply 
with their request for the union scale of wages.

Chicago, May 24, 1920. J 

Hon. Committee on Railway Terminals, 
City Council, City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen^ — Pursuant to your request of May 12, 
1920, I submit below a report on the status of the 



work on the Union Station project and on the 'Roose- 
velt Road Improvem^ent respectively. 

Union Station Work. 

Canal street Viaduct from Harrison street to Tay- 
lor street; Foundations completed from Polk street 
to Taylor street. Reinforced concrete superstructure 
completed from Taylor street to Gilpin place. Via- 
duct about 25 per cent completed. 

Harrison Street Viaduct (Canal street to the 
river) : Temporary viaduct completed and in , ser- 
vice. Steel for new viaduct about 45 per cent erected 
and forms for south half of concrete deck built. 
Viaduct about 65 per cent completed. 

Polk Street Viaduct (Canal street to the river) : 
Foundations about 95 per cent completed. Erection 
of steel and placing of forms for concrete deck now 
progressing. Viaduct is about 45 per cent com- 
pleted. 

Taylor Street Viaduct (Canal street to the river) : 
about 99 per cent completed. 

The following work is contemplated during the 
year 1920: 

Canal Street Viaduct between Polk and Taylor

lor and Roosevelt road; structural portion of Canal 
street between Van Buren street and Harrison street. 
Randolph Street Viaduct; Harrison Street Viaduct;

Viaduct; Taylor street; incline just south of Kinzie 
■street, from Orleans street west. 

The following work will be started during the year 
1920: 

Madison Street Viaduct, Van Buren Street Viaduct, 
and the Roosevelt Road Viaduct between the river 
and Canal street. 

The Union Station program as now outlined gives 
preference to street and viaduct work, with specdai 
reference to the freight district from Van Buren 
street to Roosevelt road. Although no delay is now 
being encountered on this work and the progress is 
satisfactory, no definite date can be set for the com- 
pletion of the entire project. 

The 'Monroe Street Bridge, constructed by the Un- 
ion Station Co., was completed and opened to traffic 
February .22, 1919. 

Attached is progress chart indicating status of 
work as of 'May 1, 1920. 

, Roosevelt Road Improvement; 

East approach to viaduct (between Wabash ave- 
nue and State street) completed, with the exception 
of placing of permanent paving and a short section 
of sidewalk. 

Substructure of viaduct proper from Wabash ave- 
nue to the river about 94 per cent completed; super- 
structure about 6 per cent completed. ■ Forms are 
completed, ready for concrete, in three spans of the 
superstructure near State street. The forms for ten 
other spans and fourteen columns of the superstruc- 
ture are nearly finished. 

On the west side of the River the temporary tim- 
ber ramp replacing the old ramp leading south from 
Roosevelt road to the B. & 0. railroad yards was 
completed and opened to traffic last year. The dock 
on the west side of the River, to form the west line 
of the by-pass, is about 65 per cent completed.

of timber dock and about 200 cubic yards of concrete 
footing; will be finished about August 1st.

The remodelin-g of the old approaches to fit new 
conditions and the removal of the old bridge abut- 
ments will be undertaken immediately by City 
forces. The old bridge will be out of service while 
this work is under way, and a temporary footbridge 
to Mip south of the present structure will carry ped- 
estrian traffic across the rivpr and will makp it pos- 
siblp lo maintain strpel-car service on Roosevelt

agreed that the dockage to be charged at the Chicago 
Municipal Pier should be based upon a rate of $0.50

JOURNAL— 'OITY COUNCIL. 



May 26, 1'920. 



Ill 



for nomination and election to the State Legislature 
that they will vote to repeal the State Public Utilities 
Commission Act, and restore Home Rule to the Muni- 
cipalities of the state: 

Whereas, The regulation and control of local 
affairs by local government is a fundamental prin- 
ciple of our institutions; and, in conformdty to this 
principle, public utilities should be regulated anu 
controlled by representatives elected by the people 
in the local governments wherein such utilities are 
situated and operate; and 

Whereas, The plan of regulating and controlling 
the public utilities situated in the City of Chicago in 
the mater of rates and service by the Public Util- 
ities Commission of Illinois has been duly tried and 
has been found, in practice, to be expensive, uncer- 
tain, burdensome and unsatisfactory to the people of 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, Under the existing law such utilities, 
while regulated and controlled by the Public Utilities 
Commission in the matter of rates and servdoe are 
in other respects regulated and controlled by the 
City of Chicago; and it is to the best interests of the 
people of the City of Chicago that such public util- 
ities should be regulated and controlled in all re- 
spects by the authorities duly elected by the people; 
and 

Whereas, The practice under the Public Utilities 
Act of relieving such public utilities from the obliga- 
tion of their contracts, solemnly entered into with 
the people, in the matter of rates and service, while 
attempting to hold the City to such contracts in 
other respects, even if technically legal, is inimical 
to the public welfare; and 

Whereas, The proceedings before said Commission 
to regulate rates and service have proven to be very 
expensive both to the Companies and to the City, 
and dt has been found that utilities by reason of 
their lavish and continuous expenditures for expert 
witnesses, engineers, accountants and lawyers are 
far better equipped to present their side of such cases 
than is the City; and the expenses of both sides of 
such cases are ultim'ately borne by the people; the 
expense of the companies' side in the form of in- 
creased rates and the experise of the City's side in 
the direct payment of lawyers, witnesses, experts, 
court reporters, printers and others; and 

Whereas, The situation with respect to public 
utilities is similar in other municipalities through- 
out the State to what it is in the City of Chicago: 

Therefore, be it Resolved by the City Council of 
the City of Chicago : 

L That the public welfare requires that the Pub- 
lic Utilities Commission of Illinois should he abol- 
ished at the earliest possible time and that the act en- 
titled "An Act to provide for the regulation of pub- 
lic utilities" should be repealed insofar as the same 
provides for the regulation and control of local 
public utilities otherwise than by the authorities 
elected by the people of the local government wherein 
such utilities are located and operate; 

2. That in the next campaign for the nomination 
and election of members of the house of reipresenta- 
tives and State senators each candidate should be 
pledged to do all in his power, and particularly to 
vote, to abolish such Commission and to repeal said 
act, as above indicated; and that . every candidate 
refusing to give such pledge should be defeated both 
for nomination and election: 

3. That the county central committees of Cook 
County, both of the Republican and the Democratic 



parties, be and they are requested to use their best 
efforts to see to it that only men who have given 
the pledge above indicated shall be nominated for 
senators and representatives and elected to the next 
general assembly: 

4. That the City Clerk send a copy of these reso- 
lutions to every municipality in this State and such 
copy be understood and taken to be a request to 
the officials and citizens of each such municipality 
to co-operate in bringing about the abolition of said 
commission and the repeal of said act for the regula- 
tion of public utilities to the extent aforesaid. 



Respectfully submitted.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.

No request being- made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, the vote thereon was as follows:

Kostner, Toman, Clark, Lynch — 66. 

Nays — INone. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The experience of the recent war has 
further emphasized the very great need for World 
Standardization of all weights and measures through 
the adoption of Metrrc Units; and 

Whereas, The present antiquated jumble of 
weights and m>easures now in use in this Country 
is a hindrance to education, industry, world trade 
and all activities of daily life, and has proved a 
handicap in the World's War, and will handicap us 
in our future dealings with the other civilized na- 
tions of the world, the vast majority of whom have 
now adopted metric standardization with the excep- 
tion of the United States and the British Isles; and 

Whereas, The metric system is simple, logical and 
easy to use because it is a deoimal system with only 
thee units — ^the Meter, Liter and Gram; and 

Whereas, Efforts are now being made throughout 
the United States and Great Britain to bring about 
the exclusive use of the Meter, Liter and Gram by 
both America and the British Isles; and 

Whereas, The Oity of Chicago by reason of its 
great engineering, business and health activities 
yearly amounting to many millions of dollars is 
vitally interested both as a municipality and in behalf 
of its citizens in the speedy adoption of a simple 
world wide uniform standard of Weights and 
Measures; 

Noiv Therefore be it Resolved^ That the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago respectfully urges that the 
units of measure of the Metric System be adopted by 
the Congress of the United States of America and 
the British Parliament as the exclusive legal stand- 
ard of weights and measures; and be it further 

Resolved, That copies hereof be forwarded to the 
President of the United States of America (through 
the Bureau of Standards, Department of Commerce) 
and the British Premier (through the Board of 
Trade) and other legislators concerned. 



In connection with the foregoing resolution Alder- 
man Olsen presented a communication from the De- 
partment of Weights and Measures and moved that 
said communication be published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is said' communication: 



DepartxMent of Weights and Measures,) 
Chicago, May 18, 1920.^ 

AUlerman Chas. S. Eaton, Chairman, Sub-Committee 
of Committee on Judiciary: 

Dear Sir — In reply to your inquiry for the opinion 
of the Department of Weights and Measures as to the 
advisability of the City Council petitioning Congress 
to enact a law making the 'Metric System of weights 
and measures the standard system in the United 
States would say that we favor the proposition. 

We believe that the metric or decimal system is far 
better than the present mixed system in use where 
we have the avoirdupois pound of 7000 grains, six- 
teen ounces to the pound; the troy pound of 5760 
grains, twelve ounces to the pound and the apothe- 
caries fluid ounces, etc. 

We believe that tihere should be a uniform sys- 
tem of weights and measures in use throughout the 
world in order that dealers could intelligently bid 
for trade in any place without having to go to the 
trouble and expense of reducing the weights and 
measures of one country to the equivalent of the 
w^eights and measures of their own country, and the 
expense of making up certain size packages or con- 
tainers to market their goods for one country that 
could not be used in other places; and further to make 
possible the accurate checking up of the different 
purchases by the' purchasers. 

We believe that because of the fact that a change 
from our present system to the proposed system of 
weights and measures would entail a large expense 
and would require some time in order that the Scale 
and Measure Manufacturers could cihange the scales 
and measures to comply with the new system that the 
law should not go into effect for a certain number of 
years and that in the meantime the teaching of the 
metric system should be made a part of the curri- 
culum of our schools in order that the; children grow- 
ing up would be familiar with the new order of 
things. 

The metric system is used in this country at the 
present time in scientific work and also in a number 
of factories where tools, machinery, etc. are made 
and they find it just as easy to use this system as the 
old one and with a greater degree of accuracy. 

Very respectfully yours, 

(Signed) Morris Eller, 

Inspector of Wei(/hts and Measures.

zens, who claim that the desire for sucih a change is 
not general and that an ordinance establishing such a 
schedule would be unpopular; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago hereby declares itself in favor of a referendum 
on the matter of putting into effect a dayligM saving 
schedule for future years, and recommends the sub-

tion: 

Whereas, The marked decline in the efficiency and

standards, resulting in the resignation of thousands 
of trained employes whose places cannot be, filled at 
the present rates of postal compensation; and 

Whereas, The lack of sufficient competent labor to 
properly man the Postal Service directly infiicts a 
great economic loss on the business and commercial 
'interests of the nation that suffer by reason of de- 
layed and uncertain mail dispatdhes and deliveries; 
and 



Whereas, A policy that impairs postal service is 

not only unwise from a business statidpoint, but it is 

unjust to the thousands of faithful employes whose 

wages have dwindled with the rapid increase in liv- 

, ing costs; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago urge the Congress of the United States to take 
immediate action to grant substantial wage increases
